Ok I have just been infected to what is known as a Backdoor.Rustock.B, now I am picking up a little here on google on how to approach this problem. But I have come to a conclusion where I am left hopeless, so I am asking for your help. Please help me out. I am running in safe mode at the moment and I already have the latest Kaspersky Anti-Virus software but can't install it due to the Backdoor.Rustock.B. So please tell me how to fix this problem of mine... :thumbsup:

Hey there Micr0b0t, welcome to BleepingComputer.

You might have a nasty rootkit on your computer, that opens your PC to attack. Due to the status of some of the files you have on your computer, I strongly recommend that you do the following immediately. Disconnect the infected computer from the internet until the computer can be cleaned. From a clean computer, change your online passwords-- for email, for banks, eBay, forums etc.... Do not change passwords or do any transactions while using the infected computer because the attacker may get the new passwords and transaction information.

I have read your post and I think it would be wise for you to post a HijackThis log for an expert to review.
I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem. As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your HijackThis log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having.
Please be patient, and a HJT team member will help you to clean up your system.

I see that you've posted a Hijackthis log before.
